I'm going to be flying from El Salvador to Fort Lauderale and have about an 8 hr layover there in FLL before my next two flights. Do you have any ideas of proteins I can take that would pass customs? Is jerky really the only thing that is allowed? Hardboiled eggs? I'm still underweight from Celiacs and really badly need a lot of protein, I know I could eat it on my first flight but not really have anything to eat after immigration. I'd rather not have to spend on a taxi taking me to a restaurant close to the airport with a gluten-free menu. But might have to resort to that.
This website here says that I can bring cooked fish, but I'm not sure how current/updated this site is.
Has anyone ever tried bringing cooked fish?
On a sidenote, have you had any experience with the salads that are for sale in the airports that come in little black boxes with clear lids? These should be ok to consume even if they aren't labeled gluten free and didn't have any special handling? I currently cannot eat fruit unfortunately.
